According to reports, Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray warned the RSS to stay away from any issue related to Mumbai.
In an article in Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna, Uddhav wrote, "RSS should not comment on any issue that is to do with Mumbai."
"This city belongs to Maharashtra and Marathi manoos. If RSS wants to talk of protecting Hindi they should do it in South India first," Uddav wrote.
Uddav's statement comes a day after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had come out in support of North Indians in Maharashtra.
Bhagwat had also directed his sangh workers to protect the community from attacks.
